  • Paxton named Mount Washington...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON— They say that you always find your way back home.
        For Mount Washington’s new community parks director Sheryl Paxton, that saying is couldn’t be truer.
        Raised in Lexington, Paxton attended Asbury University with a Bachelor’s degree in exercise science and a minor in recreation. After graduation, she worked in retail for a couple years before going to Eastern Kentucky University for her master’s in physical education with an emphasis in sports administration.

  • NB second, BC third, East fourth...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – Now I know how people felt in the 1930s waiting for election results, sitting and waiting for the ticker-tape machine to slowly click off the results.
        It was that way Friday night for me and North Bullitt and Bullitt Central football coaches as they sat and stared at their Iphones or Ipads waiting for the results from area football games to flash on the screen.

  • Football tie-breaker up in the...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- After the final three Class 5-A, Region 3 games were played last Friday, the three Bullitt County teams were all tied at 3-2 for the second, third and fourth-place spots for the play-offs which start next Friday throughout Kentucky.

    Unfortunately, the tie won’t be broken until late on Friday when results from other games across the state are tabulated.

    The tie-breaking system takes the number of wins of teams that the squads involved in the tie have beaten during the season.

  • It is now play-off time for...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Once again this season The Pioneer News will run the results from the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League in each Wednesday edition during the season.

    The statistics used each week are provided to the newspaper by the league and the individual teams. Questions about yardage, scoring and tackles should be directed to the league and those teams.

  • Class 3-A Regional CC meets...

     LOUISVILLE -- The Class 3-A, Region 3 Championship Cross-Country races will be held Saturday at E.P. Tom Sawyer State Park in eastern Jefferson County with all three Bullitt County programs taking part.

  • BC boys win MKAC cross-country...

      BARDSTOWN – Bullitt Central’s two cross-country programs capped off an impressive fall last Tuesday with the boys’ team winning the Mid-Kentucky Athletic Conference Championship while the girls’ team finished second.

    The MKAC is a somewhat informal group of schools from Bullitt, Nelson, LaRue and Washington County who compete for titles against each other in both cross-country and track.

  • ‘Black Monday’ sinks local...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It was ‘Black Monday’ for Bullitt County volleyball as all three of the local squads were knocked off in the opening round of the Sixth Region Tournament.

    Bullitt Central, coming off the championship in the 23rd District Tournament last week, got to play at home on Monday against 21st District runner-up Pleasure Ridge Park, but a slow start had the Lady Cougars playing from behind the rest of the night as they lost 25-10, 25-23, 25-18.

  • Cougars rout Nelson as seven...

     BARDSTOWN – Quick, efficient and to the point.

    The Bullitt Central Cougars took care of business in meticulous fashion on Friday, running through a struggling Nelson County team to the tune of a 53-7 victory.

    With the win, in the final district game of the season, the Cougars wrapped a berth in the Class 5-A play-offs. Bullitt Central finished tied for second in Region 3 along with their two county rivals, North Bullitt and Bullitt East, with 3-2 records.

  • NB again falls a conversion...

     PEWEE VALLEY – The battle for the top spot in Class 5-A, District 3 lived up to all the hype on Friday before a failed two-point conversion left South Oldham with a 35-34 victory over North Bullitt.

    This was the second straight year that the final district game of the season matched these two teams for the top spot. It was winner take all for the number one seed in the post-season. With the win, the Dragons repeat as district champions.

  • BE pulls away late to secure a...

     BUCKNER -- It was just a little bit different on Thursday for the Bullitt East Chargers.

    Its game against Oldham County was a night earlier.

    And, due to senior activities on the field, warmups had to be moved to a practice field.

    Plus, most of the game was played in a steady rain.

    But, despite all the hurdles, coach Mark Sander’s Chargers fared quite well in its season finale.

    Bullitt East had over 500 yards of total offense en route to its 28-7 victory.
